2011 C.V.N.E. (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España) Rioja Imperial Gran Reserva Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo
At some point, in the far distant future, this wine will be fantastic. It is far too monolithic right now to provide much enjoyment beyond being a "steakhouse" wine. Oak is overwhelmingly predominant masking almost every ounce of fruit that sits under the surface. It does have tons of structure, acidity, and concentration, with tannin that is finer than expected, though not yet resolved, that leads me to believe this will be a great wine some day. I think 2032 might still be too soon to drink it but it might actually taste of something other than coconut and alcohol.

    8/28/22, 5:03 AM - Decanted for 2. Drank over the course of six hours. A longer decant would help but for my palate the wine is still a ways off from being ready.
